A Brief Company History

Jade Tool was founded in 1982 by John and Dora Korson. Initially, the company made a wide variety of products. However, it quickly oriented on work holding solutions, John's previous area of expertise. Early in the company's history, it was determined that we would achieve our market niche through a quality product, exceptional service, and very competitive pricing.

Having developed an exceptional service reputation, and being recognized as having quality products at attractive pricing enlarged our customer base to the point that another core philosophy had to be added; timely delivery. To this end, the manufacturing area was increased one hundred twenty percent in 1997. New machinery and qualified operators, assemblers, and engineering staff have all been added with the goal being to support our mission.

Our Mission

Jade Tool, Inc. provides simple, durable, cost-effective solutions to complex work holding problems and customer satisfaction through a quality product, effective designs, on-time shipments, and unmatched service.
